I am happy to recommend Improv Consultants-Safran Consulting without reservation. Lisa Safran was a pleasure to work with. She helped facilitate our Communications team retreat.Our goals were strategic planning, team building and improved internal communications. At first I was skeptical that my team would actively participate in an improvisation forum, but the day exceeded my expectations in every way. Lisa and her colleague Laura were expert in breaking the ice and getting everyone excited about the activities. I could easily see how well this forum could also work for developing leadership skills as Improv really helps folks to focus on active listening, stepping outside of their comfort zones and effective communication skills.

Plus, it’s really fun. I saw my team bond over sharing laughs, all while we worked towards collaboratively building out a plan to address strategic priorities.

What a joy and pleasure to have Lisa Safran of Improv Consultants facilitate a half-day workshop at our staff retreat this year. This experience we shared as a group was enlightening, reinvigorating, and energized us a team. The laughter and fun we shared will always be remembered. The powerful take-aways from her session has had a lasting effect for our team both personally and professionally. Lisa is an authentic, kind, and gentle practitioner that made our team feel safe and comfortable from the very start. We would not hesitate to recommend Lisa to any organization seeking an inspiring, fun, and memorable team building experience. Our team had the best time! Honestly, it was the most memorable and most fun staff retreat ever in our history!

Lisa is a gem. I reached out to Lisa to help me prep for a big interview – to kick the nerves and handle tough questions in a calm and confident manner. Her exercises were unconventional, effective, and fun! I highly recommend Lisa for unleashing creativity and confidence for anyone.
